Step Back to Lead Forward
As the pace of change accelerates around us every day, we are all tempted to try to keep up by simply doing more and doing it faster. The most critical leadership skill today is the ability to do the opposite – to know how and when to step back and take the balcony view so we can lead forward effectively at work, at home and in our communities.
Kristin Maschka will demonstrate the power of the balcony view, illustrate practical strategies for getting up on the balcony when you need it most, and make sure that before you leave you have identified a specific action you will take to step back in order to lead forward.
This is Not How I Thought It Would Be: Remodeling Motherhood to Get the Lives We Want Today
Question: What’s behind the “mommy wars,” the “chore wars,” the war about “having it all,” and the everyday craziness of family life today?
Answer: Invisible, outdated assumptions about mothers, fathers, money, marriage and work that are completely out of sync with today’s families.
Kristin Maschka weaves together her own story and a deep knowledge of history and society to reveal the broad impact these subconscious assumptions and stereotypes have on our personal lives, our public policies and our workplaces. You’ll walk away with clarity as to what those outdated assumptions are, the new beliefs to replace them, and the simple tools you can use to take action and remodel motherhood.
Note: This topic can also be customized for an audience of both mothers and fathers or for community and advocacy organizations interested in issues that impact women and families. It can also be customized to emphasize particular topics in the book depending on the audience.

I’m still trying to get over the fact that the two senators representing Destination MEDICAL Center voted against requiring masks in the #mnleg. Especially after a member of their own caucus died of COVID-19.
Anyone else tired from the emotions of the week, inc simply feeling like it's safe to feel again? Between Joe's inauguration, @VP Harris making history, Amanda Gorman, finally memorializing COVID deaths & my parents getting their first shots today, I'm ready for happy hour
Thank you @GovTimWalz & @mnhealth #MN #MNStrong
Dump Instacart for Dumpling. Better for shoppers and better for customers. My experience shopping with Dumpling for both myself and in-laws has been amazing.
Stop using Instacart and switch to Dumpling which allows shoppers to set up their own small business & set their own rates. Plus you establish a relationship with a shopper who knows you. Better for everybody. http://Dumpling.us

What a joy watching Fauci's press conf. today. Last yr must have been torture for him, a brilliant man of great integrity. How liberating to speak truth w/o looking over his shoulder, & how uplifting to listen to him! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GJMDYZ2LNc
We are building a partnership with the American people to confront COVID-19.
A partnership rooted in transparency and science.
And together, we will mount an effective response to the pandemic that gets us all back to our lives and loved ones: https://www.whitehouse.gov/priorities/covid-19/
I am honored to be the first male spouse of an American President or Vice President. But I'll always remember generations of women have served in this role before me—often without much accolade or acknowledgment. It’s their legacy of progress I will build on as Second Gentleman.
